Experienced doula, Linsey Bliss, shows you how to prepare physically and mentally for every element of having a child, from pregnancy to fourth trimester in The Doula's Guide to Empowering Your Birth .

Lindsey Bliss, who has assisted as a doula at hundreds of births and is herself a mother of seven, reveals here all the wisdom and advice that doulas share with the new mothers who hire them.

The Doula's Guide to Empowering Your Birth covers the period from pregnancy through labor and birth to fourth trimester healing . The focus, however, is on preparing for birth--including topics like how to pick the right childbirth class and the right birthing method. You'll also see how to assemble the team of professionals, family members, and friends who will support you through labor and birth, and how to approach last-minute decisions about pain medications and cesarean sections.

Bliss's tone throughout is at once authoritative and confident as well as warm and encouraging . Her concern in her practice as well as in these pages is to listen to and help secure each new mom's own personal vision of a birthing experience that is safe, fulfilling, and meaningful .
